How do you define “rebellion”? Cheri and Amy were surprised by Rebecca Gregoire Lindenbach’s definition from the previous show, and they process how a correct definition shifts our parenting (and our own behavior). They also break down the simplest but most profound activity that we need to embrace to grow intimacy with our sons and daughters. Make sure to listen in to grab this powerful parenting tool!

- Cheri said, “I was trying to micro-manage my kids to manage my fears and what I really needed to be doing, and what very I’m late in the game in learning, is surrendering.” When have you micro-managed others in an attempt to manage your own fear? What would surrendering, instead of controlling, look like in action?
- Amy described making the choice to “circle back around” to a conversation with her niece, apologize, and ask for a do-over … rather than beating herself up for hours and losing sleep over her careless remark. What relationship(s) in your life would benefit from a “circling back around” practice like Amy’s?
